    My New Hampshire red is egg bound, we have tried a warm bath, k-y jelly and calcium. Nothing has worked yet. Please advise.

    Have you inserted a finger into her vent an inch or two to feel for the presence of an egg? How old is she? I would place her in a warm humid spot such as a bathroom for the night, and you can run the shower for a few minutes to make it steamy.
